I've had horrible stomach pain for 6 days now no let up went to the dr yesterday and they perscibed me carafate 3 times per day! My stomach is hurting so bad upper middle section non stop - bubbly painful hurts to lay on and it's making me nauseous! Haven't had a scope yet trying to avoid it! Can carafate heal gastritis or an ulcer alone? And would this be constant pain

I've not heard of that meds. Was you diagnosed like me with just an examination with stethoscope I was told possibly gastritis I'm currently sitting upright on sofa two hot water bottles on my lower back to try n burn out the pain, and a wheatie bag wrapped round my left side trying to get rid of that pain. I've been like this 11 weeks but back pain has started around 2 weeks ago
If it makes it go away - brilliant - it was simple gastritis/peptic ulcer.
If it doesn't - you need to be scoped.
When they do endoscopy - they can test for H Pylori infection and Gastric Ca (Very rare - but important to rule out).
